April 3rd, 2020 - by Brad Gillespie

It’s a good time to support local retailers, as well as to make your home a haven you love spending time in.

Here are some of our favourite local shops. And, if you can’t go in person, you can browse and shop online to help support our local retailers.

Precinct 75
75 Mary Street, St Peters

Precinct75 is a vibrant creative community consisting of over 70 businesses spread across 12 buildings, each with their own unique space. The heritage-listed buildings, which date back to the early 1900s, have plenty of historic charm. Stroll the high-ceilinged, light-filled space discovering design showrooms and studios, alongside boutique homewares, cafes and roasters. We’re huge fans of Saarde and Inartisan for unique homewares, textiles, furniture and special gifts. And aspiring creatives or those looking for a creative space can rent a room here.
